I always thought that the Samsung phone I tried out once was the worst cell phone ever until I got the N97 recently. I don't know what went wrong with this phone operating system while they developed it, but it hangs like the old XT computers from the early 90's. Please Nokia sort out the problems and give new software that we can down load. This phone really let you guys look like virgins in the industry. Yes it has nice features, but unfortunately you need the hole day to get something out of it. Do something quick. Capitalize on QUICK!!!
you have to learn the routine for this phone. always restart your n97 whenever you acccesed maps, camera, and especialy web browser. Or else youll get stuck on a blank screen and force you to remove the back cover and remove the battery.
this phone lags while typing texxt. Its like ive already typed a 6 letter and i saw nothing, then itll sudden burst! Now i know the purpose of qwerty keyboard.
lol! All of my widgets are web base and saved in memry card. I dont use contacts fave or app shortcuts'. All of them are third parties from fb to cnn, all the way to myspace. Thats why wenever i listen to music or go to maps my n97 crashes! Lol
after taking picture while geo tagging is on, then open maps, and then when i open web browser my phone shuts down. Why? And when im out of wifi coverage the homescreen keeps askin me. Would you like to disable blah!blah! I said yes! Yes! And effin yes! But it still askin me. Wtf!

I have everything i need on the front screen at one touch...bluetooth on or off, text/mms messaging, emails, 4 favourite contacts, alarm,web,weather, calculator, and facebook status updates rolling along the screen 24/7....the best phone by far that I have ever used !!

So i had to hard reset the bt handsfree, then it paired with N97 successfully. Try to do that.

amin parsa -iran, 16 May 2010U said u were so keen on having N 97, but its lcd s not Scratch-resistant surface ,so after a ... moreI checked the scratces, and yes, there are 3 small scratches after over 6 months of use, which I can't even see when the screen lights are on, only when the screen is black and u try to take a good look at it.
do you still have your receipt exchange it. Is anything perfect?????????? GROW UP
worst phone in the world ever. It freezes, randomly wipes data, takes forever to enter apps (like facebook), internet is slow. I HATE it and I'm stuck with it on a contract for 2 years. Aaaaggghhh. Do not buy this phone. The touch screen is hard work, not like the iPhone sensitive touch screen. Until this phone I ALWAYS bought Nokia phones, this has completely turned me off. If you do try and use the applications on it, email, internet, BBC iPlayer (which I always struggle to use), listening to music, then the battery is dead in a very short time.
Useless, useless and useless. You have been warned.

amin parsa -iran, 16 May 2010U said u were so keen on having N 97, but its lcd s not Scratch-resistant surface ,so after a ... moreWell, I have not notice any scratch in the screen on my n97, at least I didn't see any while dialing numbers or sending messages in a long long time, maybe I will see scratches if I will look at it properly, will let u know in a while.
Kind of funny been using this phone for over 6 months and I haven't notice it lol.
blowfly, 16 May 2010how come when i try to pair my bluetooth handsfree, my N97 is unable to detect the device? any... moreMaybe your N97 is in hidden mode for bluetooth,meaning other bt devices are unable to see it, OR your bluetooth device isnt in pairing mode.
how come when i try to pair my bluetooth handsfree, my N97 is unable to detect the device? any idea how?
